On the evening of the 16th, local time, Prince Philip, husband of Queen Elizabeth II, was hospitalized for medical discomfort.
Prince William said on the 22nd local time that Prince Philip was in good shape.
Prince Philip, 99, felt unwell for many consecutive days and was taken to King Edward VII Hospital in central London on the 16th.
It is reported that Prince Philip’s admission has nothing to do with COVID-19, but Buckingham Palace did not disclose the specific cause.
According to Reuters on the 22nd, Prince William said in an interview on the same day that Prince Philip is in good shape and is being closely watched.
In addition, Buckingham Palace sources also said that the detention for observation was due to caution by doctors, and Prince Philip is currently in good mental condition.
Prince Philip officially retired in August 2017, ending his 65-year public office.
His physical condition has attracted much attention in recent years, and was sent to hospital in December 2019, when Buckingham Palace also called admission a “preventive measure”.
Prince Philip has had many previous health problems.
He was diagnosed with coronary artery obstruction in 2011, bladder infection in 2012, exploratory abdominal surgery in June 2013 and hip replacement surgery in 2018.
